anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

1000 James Joyce Walks

I went on a James Joyce walking tour last year and my very first blog Tourist in Your Own City describes it. I highly recommend the walking tours, especially if one is a long-term resident in Dublin, as it distances oneself from the daily hum drum routine of walking down particular streets.

Conor McGarrigle's 1000 Joyce Walks is an international participatory art project which will stage 1000 walks, re-enacting scenes from Ulysses, in cities throughout the world to celebrate Bloomsday 2008. Participants will use the Joyce Walks website to remap routes from Ulysses to their chosen city in the world, create a map which will guide them on their walk, document their walk and use the mashup generator to create a record of their walk which will be saved in a searchable database with each mashup being embeddable.

The project is not only a celebration of Bloomsday, facilitating users to re-enact scenes from Ulysses in the tradition of Bloomsday in Dublin (differing in the crucial aspect that these walks can take place in any city in the world and are not limited to the streets of Dublin), but also acts as a tool - based on the Situationist Dérive- to navigate urban space in a new and unexpected way, creating a day of psychogeographical exploration with 1000 interventions in 24 hours across the globe. Joyce Walks seeks to reframe the everyday act of walking in familiar streets by overlaying a virtual layer of meaning onto real space enabling the user to create temporary location based interventions and temporary social spaces which tactically insert themselves into the urban environment allowing users to inscribe a new set of meanings onto the very fabric of the city.
